I just found out today about a band called B'z. These guys have been around since 1988 and apparently have sold over 80 million albums in Japan. Why have I not heard about them until now?
Sometimes you discover bands in the most random of ways. My friend learned about B'z from the Gibson guitar website and passed the info on to me. That same friend found what became one of my favorite bands, In This Moment, by reading a guitar magazine in a test center waiting room.
The director of a video by one of my old bands heard us over the piped-in music in a Los Angeles hotel restaurant.
You just never know where you might dig up some new (or new to you, anyway) music that changes your life, or at least adds to it in some small way.
